Harpswell summer resident Alan Lightman hosts the new PBS series “Searching: Our Quest for Meaning in the Age of Science.” The series features scenes shot near his home on an island in Casco Bay, according to the Portland Press Herald.
Brody Bernheisel chose Harpswell for the first short film he has written, directed and produced, and it was a success. “A Mother’s Nature,” a six-minute narrative, was shot off Mountain Road in June 2021 and won awards nationally and internationally.
Deep within the woodlands along the shores of Middle Bay, there is an artist who has found his calling. In his woodworking, Paulus Wanrooij captures the harmony, beauty, and functionality with the tranquil essence of the natural elements that surround him.
What is the sound of Harpswell?
Maybe waves crashing on the rocky shore. The laughing of a gull or the sharp cry of an osprey circling overhead. A lobster boat chugging out at dawn to haul a line of traps.
